Featuring a timely update to the plumbing and electrical codes, presented by BCD's Plumbing Program Chief Andy Skinner and Electrical Program Chief Brian Crise. BCD's Administrator Alana Cox will provide a full BCD Update, and there will be several additional pertinent industry updates. Another packed agenda with great info!

As always, our popular and well-attended QBM offers important association and industry news and updates. In addition to great programming by multiple presenters, the OBOA QBM is the perfect forum for valuable peer-to-peer discussion — quality time to connect with colleagues who deal with the same issues you see daily. You just can't get these incredibly beneficial discussions with peers from around the state anywhere else.

We will also hear about the latest from committees, boards, and other partner organizations within building safety. Come with questions and ideas and stay connected to your peers with OBOA.
